Live Music In and Near Clermont

By Michael W. - Clermont Guitar Teacher

My name is Mike, and I have been playing guitar for close to 10 years. I currently play guitar and sing lead vocals for a band as well as lead the worship bands at my local church here in Clermont, FL. I love listening to and playing live music, and Clermont offers opportunities to do both. If you’re interested in taking guitar lessons in Clermont, here are some tips on places to see and things to do on your way to becoming the next great guitarist.

While there are some great acts in Orlando, you don't have to drive far to find some live music in Clermont. The Downtown Clermont Business District hosts a Food Truck Night on the first Friday night of each month. This is a great place to discover and enjoy local bands. Each year in October, they also host the Downtown Music Festival highlighting many bands on 3 to 4 stages. Whatever genre you play, you can find a band and act to enjoy and be inspired. Food Truck Nights and the Music Festival are great places to network and seek opportunities to showcase your own talents.

The annual Pig on the Pond Festival in March and The Groveland 4th of July Festival, only a few miles west, hire out some great acts. Pig on the Pond allots time on the stage for local school music programs to demonstrate what they have been learning. Finally, there is the Annual Holiday of Hopes Festival each year in November which raises money for charity. This festival is personally my favorite because my band was the host band this past year.

Once you watch and listen to other bands playing live, you can't help but desire to play on a stage yourself. This is a great motivation while taking guitar lessons in Clermont. The first few months of learning guitar can be difficult and having a goal will keep you pushing through. Tell your instructor that you’re looking for opportunities to play live. For your instructor to recommend you to those in his/her network, you will need to demonstrate skill and professionalism. This is a motivation to practice.

Once you get a few gigs from your instructor under your belt, you can then begin networking with event coordinators and local musicians. It is helpful to have a few references, as well as originally recorded demos on hand when networking.

Many think that they will never play in a live venue, but if you set goals, seek opportunities, and send your references and work to people in your area you will find yourself progressing in your music much more quickly than you originally imagined. No matter your genre or playing style, there are many opportunities for you to meet, network with, and learn from great local musicians while taking guitar lessons in Clermont.

David L.

Windermere, FL

David was born on the nineteenth of October in Queens, New York. He was first introduced to music at the age of eight, when his parents enrolled him in piano classes in his hometown. When he moved down to Florida at the age of 15, he started learning how to play drums at a local church.

Shortly after that, David realized playing Guitar Hero wasn't quite enough for him so his father picked up an old guitar from a garage sale a few months later. He immediately fell in love with it. About 3 months later, David entered a Regional Competition known as "Top Nazarene Talent" and placed first. He then got the opportunity to compete at Trevecca Nazarene University and placed fifth in the region after only playing for a short period of time.

Since then, he has played in many churches, venues and festivals with local bands and talented musicians. His influences range from Pop, Contemporary, Alternative, Rock and Metal. He hopes to help his students find their own unique style by ...

About David

I teach Pop, rock, blues, and metal. I was taught for about 10 years on acoustic/electric and have had 5years doing private vocal lessons. After that I started teaching myself Guitar, Bass, and piano. I started playing for about five years touring and have taught in churches and learning centers. I also have a band and play lead guitar at a venue every Saturday night. I benefit from teaching when I see the student gets it and the accomplishment is what makes me speechless to the impact I have made or whatever impact there is to come! Also, feel free to check out my band at www.deardestinymusic

*** Lesson Details ***
Students cant expect a laid back atmosphere with zero pressure. Learning guitar, like any other hobby or anything you wish to learn, requires dedication and love for the craft. Anyone can play any instrument they put their mind to, all they have to do is love it and enjoy the feeling of making music.

The Curriculum I use is Mel Bay's Guitar Method. It's the book I used when I was first learning and it set a firm foundation on which I have learned to build on and improve.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Digitech GNX 3000 Pedal board
Line 6 UX2 Interface
Schecter Damien Elite Solo 6
Ibanez S1170
Line 6 212
Kustom 412 Head and Half Stack

*** Travel Equipment ***
A guitar, I expect the students to have a tuner or get a guitar in time.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in legato, alternate picking, sweep picking, economic picking and basically all methods of playing lead guitar. But I do start off by teaching acoustic and rhythm guitar

Yegues S.

Ocoee, FL

I am currently the guitar teacher at Ocoee High School. I am fluent across multiple styles and types of guitar playing. I have extensive knowledge of music theory and how to apply it to the guitar for easier playing.

About Yegues

I am currently the guitar teacher at Ocoee High School.

I have a degree in Music Education and Flute Performance from Florida State University. Flute was my primary instrument throughout high school and college, but guitar is now my main focus. I have given multiple lessons and master classes on both flute and guitar. I have also been a music theory tutor for many students. I have a lot of experience with both giving and receiving lessons, so I have learned many ways to adapt to any situation.

I love laughing and making jokes, which is one of the most important aspects of any teacher. Le
ssons should be something to look forward to rather than dreading to spend time practicing. I do prefer being more laid back as a teacher, but still know when it's time to get more serious about the work.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am laid back most of the time time, but I still expect whatever we assigned to be practiced for the next/current lesson. I will expect some form of technique exercise to be played as a warm up to each lesson as well as non-instrumental warm-ups like breathing. As a student, you can choose repertoire to work on, or I can provide music and etudes depending on the skill level. I can provide any supplementary materials as needed.

Music lessons - Flute and guitar are the two instruments I play at a professional level, however, I am able to play and have a solid understanding of most instruments.

Math lessons - My experience ranges from elementary to college as far as giving lessons. I come into lessons prepared, and will know most of the subject matter presented, and if not, I am a quick learner and am able to understand material presented very quickly.

Natalie H.

Yalaha, FL

Beginner to Intermediate. Rhythm, tab, and musical notation.

About Natalie

Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in M
usic, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, "The Local Buzz". At this moment she had discovered her desire to teach. "I just wanted everyone I knew in music to know and use what I was learning, or had learned from the music classes, professionals I had been meeting and working with, and my overall music life experiences". By 1997, Natalie was signed to an independent label and embarked on a new adventure.

"Music is an adventure, but without the foundation and passion I had as a child, I would have never landed where I did. I truly LOVE to teach and share what I know about piano, and the world of music. Music is what I know, and know best. Helping to create a solid foundation and build confidence in someone embarking on a journey in music is the most rewarding profession I have ever had the honor of participating in."

*** Lesson Details ***
Natalie enjoys teaching students of any age, but specializes in piano, voice and beginning guitar, tailoring lessons to each individual's goals and reasons for learning whether it be for personal pleasure or professional performance.

Keeping things lighthearted and fun, Natalie breathes confidence into each student using her sense of humor, and down-to-earth personality.

Feeding off 40 years of personal and professional experiences, Natalie patiently listens to the student's desires, needs and notates their learning patterns, allowing for growth at their own pace.

Natalie's goal is to Make Music Matter to you and create a foundation that will allow you to continue to find joy in making music for the rest of your life.
